Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Liberty Stadium when Swansea City and Blackburn Rovers square off against each other in the Championship round 9. The Swans are determined to return to the Premier League following a two-season absence, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Saturday’s clash against Blackburn. The South Wales outfit totally outplayed Stoke City (2-0) in midweek, with the team preventing the Potters from taking a shot on target, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Blackburn.
The Riversiders, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 loss to Reading, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Swansea’s party at Liberty Stadium. Both Byers and Gibbs-White are sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Bennett, Dack, and Travis are out of contention for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Korey Smith):
After spending his youth career at Norwich City, Korey Smith made his first-team debut for the Canaries in January 2008 in the FA Cup clash against Charlton Athletic. Smith played 67 league games for Norwich City and he scored 4 goals for the club, but in 2013 he signed a two-year deal with Oldham Athletic.
The midfielder who was born on 31 January, 1991, scored one goal in 42 appearances for the club in the 2013/2014 campaign and on 27 June, 2014, he joined Bristol City for an undisclosed fee. It has to be noted that he won Johnstone’s Paint Trophy with the Robins in his first season with the team.
Korey Smith was born in Hatfield, England and he has two younger sisters, Alice and Harriet. Smith is a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of operating as central midfielder and right back as well. The Bristol City footballer also represented the likes of Barnsley and Yeovil Town (on loan) in the past.
